Black Lion Audio Sparrow D/A Converter (White)

The Black Lion Audio Sparrow D/A Converter features wide dynamic range and detailed, musical conversion that's as functional in the project studio as it is in the mastering facility.

Black Lion Audio Sparrow D/A Converter Details

Black Lion Audio proudly offers the Sparrow D/A converter. Designed around the 32 bit capable ESS9012 chip, the Black Lion Audio Sparrow D/A Converter (White) features wide dynamic range and detailed, musical conversion that's as functional in the project studio as it is in the mastering facility.

The Sparrow D/A features user selectable AES, coax SPDIF, and optical SPDIF for input connectivity. Output connections include both balanced XLR for pro studio, consumer level RCA for home stereo, and a high current Walt Jung-inspired headphone output. Two mute buttons allow for independent control of line or headphone signals. Front panel volume control governs headphone outputs, and line output level is fixed.

The Sparrow D/A converter is available in two platforms: red and white. The white Sparrow D/A features Black Lion Audio's most advanced clocking architecture, and is designed to be the counterpart to the Black Lion Audio Sparrow MKII A/D Converter (White).

The White model features Black Lion Audio's most advanced clocking architecture to date, a stunning 128dB unweighted 20-20kHz dynamic range into 600 ohms. There are few D/A converters that can meet or exceed this kind of dynamic range, or provide you with similar clarity and musicality no matter how much you??re willing to spend! There??s a reason why engineers like Tom Lord-Alge, Tony Maserati, and Mike Shipley use Black Lion Audio converters.

When it comes to tracking and mixing, it??s difficult to make up for the sonic influences of poor A/D/A conversion. There??s a debate in our industry: which is more important, a good A/D or a good D/A? Both are equally important. A good D/A can make your source come alive, clarify instrument placement within a mix, and help alleviate the bloated, grainy, and wooly qualities inherent in poor conversion. Whether you??re simply listening to program material, working on microphone placement, or mixing a project, a good D/A will help prevent listening fatigue and make your decision making process much easier.
